26 year old Shomari Alder of West Palm Beach was arrested after causing two car crashes within ten minutes of each other. Alder fled the scene of each accident, even though injuries were caused to the victims. He not only faces hit-and-run charges, but also a charge for driving with a suspended license.
According to witnesses, Alder was driving a Mustang at high speeds on a wet road. His reckless driving caused his car to become stuck under the SUV he rear-ended, so he fled the scene on foot. When authorities caught Alder, they realized he had caused another accident that had occurred just 10 minutes prior. He is being held on $8,000 bond.
